Even I cringed when I read this description:
Given the seller's handle, I was amused by the graded mint scale ('gem

As, poeple have already mentioned, 3.5 may be more useful, but it's obvious that
5.25 is more valuable. Look at the games that sell for the most on eBay (we're

Ok, someone who collects classic games and they're surprised by a 5.25 disk? They got the shame on me part right, but have no right being upset at you, and doubly so for not talking to you first.
